Library and Information Science | Research & Consulting

Meredith S. Butts

I'm a librarian specializing in the science of information, from how people access and utilize it to what makes good information invaluable.  As an educator, I have a direct understanding of how we seek and process information in order to learn.  As a librarian, I get to apply my abilities towards helping others.

Good information makes all the difference.  Let's work together.



I can deliver a wide-range of personalized services for organizations of all kinds: topic-specific research for companies and individuals; writing support such as indexing, proofreading and editing; workshops and seminars. Learn more here.

Information Usability

Effective communication is a two-way street - production and delivery on one side, users on the other. Whichever side you're on, I can help.

My philosophy is simple.

Everyone has a right to access, not just any information, but good information.


Chasing News & Notes

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
